EDMONTON, Alberta -- Ben Scrivens made 59 saves in a spectacular performance that helped the Edmonton Oilers beat the San Jose Sharks 3-0 Wednesday night.
The Sharks matched the record for shots against the Oilers, accomplished by the New York Rangers in a 4-3 loss in 1993. This time, the recently acquired Scrivens turned away all 59 as Edmonton won its third straight.
Justin Schultz, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall scored for Edmonton, which had only 27.
Scrivens stopped 20 shots in the first, 22 in the second and 17 in the third.
RANGERS 2, ISLANDERS 1
NEW YORK -- Daniel Carcillo scored the tiebreaking goal 4:36 into the third period, and the Rangers completed a two-game sweep of the outdoor series with a victory over the Islanders at frigid Yankee Stadium.
Building off their 7-3 win over New Jersey at the ballpark in the Bronx on Sunday, the Rangers took out another division rival under the lights in front of 50,027 fans. The temperature was 22 degrees when the first puck dropped at 7:45 p.m. with a single-digit wind-chill factor.
Benoit Pouliot also scored for the Rangers, who are 3-0 in their history while playing outside. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 30 shots while again adorning pinstriped pads in honor of the Yankees. The only goal he allowed was a late second-period tally to Brock Nelson.
